Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 20FQ0040GE

The OLED Display Update
Source: Hot Hardware English
We're also updating our rating of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga, to account for the significant upgrades and enhancements its OLED display option brings. From its impressively better brightness, saturation, contrast ratio and viewing angles, to its improvements in battery life, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga's upgraded OLED display option is well worth the roughly $240 premium it carries. It also transforms the machine from a HotHardware Recommended product, to an easy HotHardware Editor's Choice.

In the end, the verdict is what any ThinkPad fan might expect. The X1 Yoga’s strong performance, great keyboard, quality touchpad, and broad range of ports make it a great laptop for work. There are areas where competitors have the edge, such as display contrast ratio, but the X1 Yoga is one of the few 2-in-1 devices that can truly handle rigorous day-to-day use.

There's no question that Lenovo has a really nice utlralight machine here in the ThinkPad X1 Yoga. The X1 Yoga builds on the pedigree of Lenovo's excellent X1 Carbon line with innovations in the 360 degree Yoga hinge and integration of the ThinkPad Pen Pro, which can offer significant additional utility.

There’s no doubt in our minds that the X1 Yoga is a top-grade business convertible. We couldn’t dispute Lenovo’s claim that it’s the thinnest and lightest in its class. It’s thin even for a regular notebook at 0.66 inches tall, and light at 2.8 pounds. As with just about all convertible notebooks though, it’s unreasonable to expect the X1 Yoga to replace a dedicated tablet. Consider tablet mode a bonus.

We like the ThinkPad X1 Carbon; we like the ThinkPad Yoga 260; and we like the ThinkPad X1 Yoga. Fourteen inches is a great screen size, yielding systems that are much easier to carry than 15.6-inch luggables, and at 2.8 pounds the Lenovo is easier to carry than many 13.3-inch machines.

The ThinkPad X1 Yoga is a versatile business 2-in-1 that will last all day and give you plenty of power to be productive. We particularly appreciate the WRITEit software and stylus that make Windows 10 more useful in tablet mode. If you want to save a little money, Lenovo's 12.5-inch ThinkPad Yoga 260 starts at just $989 and provides deeper key travel, but has a less colorful display and no 2560 x 1440.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga is not only everything we wished the generation 1 through 3 ThinkPad X1 Carbon models would have been (better screen, more ports, better specs for the price), it's more. It has the 360 degree hinge for versatility--look ma, it's a tablet, it's a laptop and a presentation device. It has a very good digital pen with a place to store that easy to lose pen. It's incredibly slim and light, yet durable.

Intel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series). Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
6500U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
14":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.4 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


79.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
